Pacific Loon was still present today out from Linwood Resort on the east 
side of the lake.  Very nice find by Milt.

Also present 5 Common Loons for nice comparisons, although the Pacific was 
staying by itself most of the time.  In the area were two White-winged 
Scoters, one flock of 200 Buffleheads and Common Goldeneye, 4 late Western 
Grebes, and a separate flock of near 400 Redheads, ringnecks, scaup, 
Gadwall, Mallards, and a few others.  Staying away from shore and the 
hunting areas.  We never heard a shot while we birded the lake area for 2 
plus hours.  At Battle Point Park there was a Red-necked Grebe and 2 more 
Common Loons.

Every single gull was a Ring-billed  Gull.  Probably 200 plus birds and no 

The 3 Black Scoters were still on the east pond at the Rice sewage ponds.
